A brief survey on investigations of localized optical modes (edge modes (EM) [1,2] and defect modes (DM) [1,3]) in chiral liquid crystals (CLC) as well as the original results on the analytic theory of edge and defect modes are presented.

Keywords: photonic liquid crystals, edge modes, defect modes, low-threshold lasing
